  1. Shape panel measurements vs. Transform panel measurements

    The measurements (width and height) on the Shape panel are inverted compared to the measurements on the Transform panel. The transform panel shows the correct measurements, but no the Space panel. Please fix so that both panels have the same measurement.

  2. Opacity in Properties Panel

    If there is a blending effect applied in the opacity settings the properties panel does not reflect the blending mode. You have to click on the appearance panel or opacity to see if one is applied. Took me a few minutes to trouble shoot why an element was not visible. It would be nice if buried settings would show up if selected in the properties panel since it was designed to make the interface more simple.

  4. Can't click on properties dropdowns

    I just updated AI to the newest release and suddenly I'm unable to access extended properties not displayed on the main panel nor will it let me select and change colors via the properties panel. I also don't like that you've all decided what tools I work with constantly, I need to be able to customize what I need to keep open for my workflow optimization. Because if I could, I could work around this bug.

  5. Layer's not working - Bring Forward Not working

    I have tried various ways to get this graphic to show OVERTOP of the blue box. At first I tried just the "object arrange bring to front" and after that didn't work for some reason, I just used the layer panel. As you can see... even having the head on the top later OVER the bottom layer... it still will not show upfront.

  8. Snap to...

    Every time I open or create a new document the SNAP to PIXEL or SNAP to GRID is on... despite I turn it off. I just switched from mac to pc and have never had that issue. I believe its exclusively a pc issue in which there is nothing that remembers your last preference for various panel options outside of just this one. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a solve cause its slowing me down. Thanks big time.

  9. constraint not working properly

    Im using adobe illustrator cc 24.1.2 on Windows 10 v 1903, The constraint function in the properties tab is not working properly for me. When i press the constraint button, the height and width proportion should stay the same when i change one number, but it changes them to be slightly off. If i make a circle 500 x 500, constrain the dimensions, and change the height to 250, it changes the width to 249.499. It doesnt matter what numbers i use, it will always change the other dimension to be slightly off what it should be

  12. Horizontal and vertical paths have 0.0001pt height/width

    Illustrator v24.1
    macOS 10.15.4

    All strictly horizontal lines have 0.0001pt “H Value”, while all vertical lines have

    0.0001 pt “W Value”. If I manually type 0 in these fields, it reverses back to 0.0001pt. Using up and down arrows does not set this value to zero either.
    These same lines are 0pt height/width in the previous version of Illustrator.

  14. Properties panel auto select field contents

    Illustrator v24.0
    Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6

    Since the Properties panel was introduced in Illustrator, it won't allow selecting an item, then click once on a field name, such as W for the width field, and automatically select the contents of the field so you can then just enter a new value or use the arrow keys to change the value.

    It works fine in the Control bar and other panels, just not in Properties.
    It works in the Properties panels of InDesign and Photoshop, as well.
    Was hoping it would be fixed in Illustrator 2020, but still not.

  15. Extended properties panel inconsistent with InDesign

    Not so much a bug, perhaps a feature request but yet more evidence of the various dev teams going off in their own directions - like the Photoshop's inexplicable rationale for switch the default behaviour of proportional scaling ... ahem, I digress.

    Please would you consider implementing the properties panel behaviour from InDesign? By this I am specifically referring to the extension of the properties panel behaviour when selecting the 'more options/fewer options' ellipses.

    The InDesign implementation expands the existing sub-panel to include the additional options which are not normally visible.

    The Illustrator implementation is less elegant by simply repeating…

  16. workspace options not available

    I can't figure this out. Clearly someone else has had this issue, but there is no published solution. From your archive:

    "Workspaces not working, all panels hidden on start up.
    Just update to CC23.0.1 and when I start up Illustrator all the panels are turned off and my workspace won't change or reset.

    I can turn on the panels manually, but it resets when I close Illustrator. The reset, new workspace and manage workspaces options are greyed out. If I try to change the workspace nothing happens.

  19. Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0 Divide tool not working

    I'm running on a iMac Pro (2017) Mojave OS 10.14 and using Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0. I've tried using the divide tool via the Pathfinder panel as well as the new Properties Panel and neither will work. Typically it would divide the two patterns top and bottom and now it just leaves the patterns as is without dividing. I also have used the guides to divide a pattern and that is not working either.

  20. layer

    The layers panel does not work. You cannot turn layer visibility on or off. Even enable / disable the panel itself. It is necessary to correct this error!
